Thirsty Bear

Today little bear was out for a walk again and he got terribly thirsty as it was a hot winter day! The sun was beating down and he was working up a sweat and he saw a water tap in the distance. Yay!!! Some water!!

Except, this water tap was not working. No matter what he did, it didn't release any water. Poor little bear... so thirsty and nothing available for him. He walked a bit farther and came across a water fountain. Whew!! Maybe the water tap was just for gardeners or something. But here was a bona-fide water fountain.

Mind you, the ON button was going to prove difficult for little bear... but even with someone helping him and pushing the button... nothing came out of the water fountain either! Ergh! Poor little bear! Obviously people are not supposed to walk in the winter-time or something. No outhouses... no water fountains. Sigh...

Little bear was going to have to learn to pack himself a water bottle! He is learning the art of self-sufficiency. He's learning that if you go into the bush, you have to be prepared for all eventualities!

Which is a good lesson for us as well. We never know what we might encounter in life and it's always good to be prepared and have a back-up plan. If Plan A doesn't work out, then maybe it's time for Plan B. Little bear has learned that he has to go with the flow. Which is something we can do as well. Don't get too hooked on Plan A... take a look at see what else presents itself.
